Obviously we’re looking forward to seeing Brenton Thwaites in full costume in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, but check out how cute he looks in a fedora!
The actor graced the cover of At Large Magazine, Issue 8, on newsstands March 23. Here’s what he had to say:
On working withJohnny Depp: “Johnny was one of my favorite actors – still is. Our conversations were usually along the lines of his opinions about certain guitars; we both have a pretty big passion for guitars. And he was about to go off with the Hollywood Vampires, his group with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry from Aerosmith. But there were a few things I was asking Johnny in terms of the acting books he’d studied, the actors he admired as a kid. He was pretty open to me about all that stuff. He has such a great energy. He’s so positive. And in between ‘acting’ and ‘cut,’ he’s amazing.”
On his Pirates of the Caribbean 5 role: “I play a young soldier in the Royal Navy called Henry. He makes an unlikely alliance with Jack Sparrow and Carina Smyth, who’s played by Kaya Scodelario, in order to find a certain treasure they’re all looking for; something that will help each of their individual causes and all of their problems.”
On his relationship with girlfriendChloe Paceyand their 12-month-old daughterBirdie: “Our kid loves traveling as much as I do – she cries when she’s not on a plane. We’re kind of one big happy traveling trio. The trick will be when she’s 4 or 5: to see what’s going on later in my career, where we’re going to raise her, where we’re going to live.”
Did you catch the new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales that aired during the 2017 Super Bowl?!
The new installment finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack.
Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy.
At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Extended Look
In his interview for the magazine, the actor shared some behind-the-scenes tidbits about the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie and his personal life. Here’s what he had to say:
On his character’s role in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales: “I play a guy called Henry who is a soldier in the Royal Navy. At the beginning of the film, he is locked up by his own men for trying to warn them of an evil coming their way. No one believes him except for a girl called Carina Smyth, played by Kaya Scodelario, who helps him escape. Together they realize they are actually after the same treasure and can help each other get there.”
On special training he had to do for the role: “A few weeks before principal photography began, I worked with the stunt guys on my sword fighting skills. So, now I can chop up a whole carrot in just 1.3 seconds.”
On the best part about his work: “I love the traveling, seeing new places and learning from different cultures all around the world.”
On his favorite way to unwind: “To unwind, I just go into the ocean. As long as there is an ocean nearby, I can unwind.”
